The only news I’m hearing and reading these days is about the Bush administration’s train wreck of corruption charges, Supreme Court nominee turmoil, and low popularity numbers. O.k., fine. Meanwhile, I have to go to the BBC for this: Earthquake toll leaps to 73,000.

Dan Hughes is keeping us posted about his brother Trevor, who is on the ground in Pakistan.

Trevor also has a blog with pictures and updates, and a way to donate directly to families affected by this disaster. Here’s the kind of life they are facing:

The winter is approaching. Four days ago, I observed the first snow caps on the mountains. We have already had quite a bit of freezing rain and hail where I am. The majority of the 3 million left homeless from this catastrophe are in the mountains. The snow is coming and very, very few are ready.
